Like many others, Clisten V. Murray IAC 1696 was hooked on aviation as a young boy when an occasional plane flew over his family’s southern Indiana farm. He passed away January 27, 2020 having lived a long and healthy life to the age of 97 until undergoing a heart valve repair in September 22, 2019.
